For the last time, on Friday, May 24, Brookfield High School seniors boarded a big yellow bus as part of their school days.
The two buses took the 70 students to DeYor Performing Arts Center, where they rehearsed for the graduation ceremony that will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 26.
First, though, Brookfield United Methodist Church treated the students to a breakfast of egg casseroles, potatoes, sausage and thick-slabbed bacon.
The breakfast also was an opportunity to debut the senior video, which showed snaps of the students as kids and through the years, with lots of selfies and pictures from school activities and dances, and to discuss the dress code for graduation.
“It’s been a privilege to be your principal,” high school Principal Adam Lewis told the 70 seniors. “You’ve been a great class. I wish you the best, and congratulations.”
BUMC members who donated their time to set up and clean up the breakfast were Esther Medved, Mary Ann Toth, Sandy Sydlowski, Diane Bulick, Nancy Wray, Elaine Obermiyer, Kathy French, Jim Parke, Pastor Dick Smith, Karen Saker, Amy Rogers and JoAnne Varga, said Melissa Sydlowski, who coordinated the breakfast.
Church members donated money and food.
“Last, but certainly not least, a note of gratitude goes to the Black Sheep Bacon Co. for generously donating 20 pounds of bacon and to Lon Smith of Sperry Farms Inc. for the donation of 15 dozen eggs,” Sydlowski said in a Facebook post.
